Based on the novel by Liz Jensen, THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX tells the story of nine year old Louis Drax (Aiden Longworth) who, after surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday. While police investigate the cause of the young boy’s near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father, acclaimed neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal (Jamie Dornan) uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition. But as he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of Louis’ seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for Louis’ mother (Sarah Gadon). As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.

THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX hits Irish cinemas September 9th.
